Shopping and cities

What does your ideal holiday day look like? A day's shopping in one of the Achterhoek towns should certainly not be missed. Visit nearby places such as Winterswijk and Bredevoort. Or combine a day of shopping with another day out. Take a cycling or walking tour or visit, for example, the Mondriaan House in Winterswijk.

The cosy Winterswijk

Winterswijk is a village that will surprise you! A range of shops geared to a number of visitors that far exceeds the number of inhabitants. The main reason for this is that Winterswijk is enormously popular in the region. And rightly so! Bustling shopping streets with the atmospheric market as a central point. Every Wednesday morning and Saturday you will find the famous goods market in the centre. Winterswijk has an extensive calendar of events and for peace and quiet and space you can get acquainted with National Landscape Winterswijk! This varied offer provides sufficient ingredients for a wonderful day. Click here for more information about shopping in Winterswijk.

Bredevoort Book City

A book market in an historic fortified town. The Achterhoek has many historic cities and Bredevoort is one of them. The city enjoys national renown as a result of its books. Bredevoort is home to a huge number of second-hand book shops and many cultural events are also organised in relation to books. It's definitely worth a visit; with its old fortifications and city canal, you'll struggle to take it all in.
